The best education money can’t buy

For 175 years NSW public schools have prepared the children of today to succeed and build better communities for tomorrow. 

Across almost every industry you will see our alumni leading the way, from Reserve Bank governors to High Court judges, experts in health, education, construction and international film and sports stars.

Why are public schools the best choice?

Our public schools offer a comprehensive, tuition-free education that lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning and success. Our students consistently feature as the most successful performers in the NSW HSC and we perform above the national average in NAPLAN results.

In fact, over 50 of our students achieved top positions in the state for their HSC subjects in 2023, a testament to the quality of our education. 

With more than 140,000 dedicated staff across 2,200 schools in the state – which includes teachers recognised as some of the best in Australia - our students can access cutting-edge resources from expert teachers who help them thrive. 

Our students can also participate in specialty programs that include vocational education, dance, drama, music, visual arts, literature, debating and public speaking. 

We provide exciting opportunities to broaden our students' horizons through language programs, cultural exchanges and international competitions. 

We celebrate our rich diversity, which supports our local communities and helps create well-rounded global citizens. 

The impact of public school excellence is evident across our schools, students, and alumni. From students representing Australia on international platforms to alumni revolutionising assistive technology.

Not to mention the wealth of Australian athletes the public school system has produced!
